We always love seeing our customers wearing their ENELL bras while doing their favorite activities. We've never seen someone working on aerial silks (cirque-style) before in their ENELL so we were excited to see supermodel Ashley Graham doing just that on Instagram:
The ENELL SPORT and LITE bras are both good for aerial work and inversions because they encapsulate and compress the breasts. The higher neckline of the SPORT helps contain the breasts, even when upside down (because we know they may have a tendency to smack you in the face otherwise!) The wide, no-slip straps add an extra layer of security and support. The LITE offers the same encapsulation and no-slip straps, but the cut is slightly lower in the front.
While this is the first spotting of cirque work in ENELL, this isn't the first time we've seen ENELL in the air! Check out our friend CC, who gave aerial yoga a spin in her Bicsay Green ENELL SPORT bra
Prefer to stay on the ground? Here are 5 more types of yoga you could try:
You’ve either fully embraced yoga and have your favorite form, studio, teacher, and asana. Or, you still don’t quite understand the point and steer very clear; except, they are on to something with those pants! Either way, there’s so much more to this practice than meets the eye. Yoga is truly a layer cake that offers a style to suit any practitioner, and once you find what’s right for you, there is an exhaustive list of benefits in store.
Strength, peace of mind, detoxification of organs, and flexibility are just a few ways in which your wellness will improve with yoga, offers up Brendon Payne, a certified yoga teacher who founded Sequel Life Fitness. Further, he says the flexibility shouldn’t be a turn-off either. It’s not a prerequisite for your yoga classes. “Yoga is not based on flexibility. Yoga is most often focused on breath work.”
Whether you’ve been on the mat a while, or are starting to come around to the idea, there are a few yoga styles worth considering, and Payne has outlined those for us. Get the ultimate yoga experience and try each or some of these.
Yin: This may be the style most people think of when they think yoga, suggests Payne, who says Yin is very calming, peaceful, and gentle on the body. It’s ideal for newbies, and can also be very effective for athletes as a recovery method thanks to the slow, lengthy stretches it employs.
Vinyasa: Common on many studio schedules, this is a great style to graduate to once you grasp the basics. This Sanskrit word means connection, defines Payne, who explains that, like most styles, the breath is very important here. “Students practicing this style move with their breath in a very fluid motion. Hence the common nickname Flow Yoga.”
Ashtanga: This style is known for building an intense internal heat with a progressive series of postures that allow you to work up a quick detoxifying sweat, explains Payne. If weight loss or a hearty calorie burn is what you’re after, this may be the class for you.
Bikram: This is the hot yoga that has become quite popular in the U.S., created by Bikram Choudhury. It’s unique in that it consists of a set sequence of 26 postures, that Payne explains “works through the entire body, from the inside out to ensure maximum function of the human body.”
Hatha: Hatha yoga refers to any series of asanas designed to align the body and calls us to focus more on the breath in order to be still in these postures, explains Payne. This style is ideal for those looking to disconnect from stress, reconnect with themselves, or simply rehabilitate worn, tired muscles.
